Travelling With Contact Lens

Aircraft cabins tend to have drier air quality and lower oxygen availability. If you are a contact lens user, using lubricating eye drops in your eyes before boarding may help to relieve some eye dryness during your flight. It is most ideal to remove your contact lens before your flight; your eyes are most comfortable wearing glasses when travelling by plane.

Why DO I Have Blurred and Cloudy Vision?

A cataract is a condition in which the clear lens of the eyes becomes cloudy, preventing sufficient light rays from entering the eyes and impairing vision. Age is the most common reason for developing cataracts. The development of cataract is also associated with a positive family history (if a family or relative has cataract before), an unhealthy lifestyle (such as smoking and heavy alcohol intake) and prolonged exposure to sunlight or radiation. Cataracts can cause eyes to be easily irritated, and can lead to decrease in visual acuity, with blurry and double vision.

DHA For Brain Development

During the last trimester of pregnancy and first two years of life, the brain undergoes rapid growth. At this stage, the brain requires sufficient nutrients especially DHA for the development of sensory, perceptual, cognitive, and motor skills. Fetuses and infants receive DHA from their mothers through the placenta and breast milk. Mothers should ensure sufficient DHA level through DHA-rich fishes that are free from heavy metals and pollutants, and high DHA supplements. Infant fed with formula milk should ingest milk that has DHA oil added to it to aid brain development.

Shampoo Your Hair The Right Way!

Daily hair wash is essential for the hot and humid weather in Singapore. Here are some steps to shampoo your hair the right way: Gently brush your hair to improve blood circulation in your scalp and avoid entangled hair. Next, rinse hair with warm water to remove the dirt in your hair, but do not apply the shampoo directly onto scalp. Instead, lather the shampoo into foam by using your palms before applying the foamy mixture onto your scalp. Massage your scalp gently with your fingers, not nails then spend a longer time rinsing to ensure that no shampoo residue remains. Lastly, use a towel to remove excess water in your hair and let your hair dry with cool air. 

Moisturize Dry Scalp

We put in a lot of efforts to make sure that our skin is well-moisturized but tend to forget the layer of skin underneath the hair. A person with dry skin will most likely have a dry scalp too. Having dry skin is the most common cause of an itchy and flaking scalp. Scalp oil moisturizes the scalp better than creams or lotions as it stays longer on the scalp. Jojoba oil is the most commonly used scalp oil, and other options include almond, flax seed or olive oil. Apply the scalp oil onto wet hair,as it prevents oil from getting into hair. Also, choose a shampoo with citrus oil, tea tree oil or chamomile oil as it rinses out oil treatment effectively.

Caffeine During Pregnancy

An excess caffeine intake may lead to low birth weight and miscarriage. Caffeine may affect a baby’s growth as it can constrict blood vessels and limit the nutrient that are supplies to baby. Also, caffeine inhibits iron absorption. The low iron stores at the fetal stage leads to a higher risk of iron deficiency during infant development. Yet, pregnant mothers need not avoid caffeine totally. The American Dietetic Association suggests 300mg daily (equals to 3 cups of coffee) as the upper limit of caffeine intake for pregnant women. Other sources of Caffeine include tea, soda, chocolates and energy drink!

Away With PMS!

Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) includes irritability, mood swings, water retention, bloating, and headaches.  Interestingly, PMS can account for more than 50% of the sick leave women take at work. Research by the National Institute of Health shows that women under stress have moderate to severe symptoms during menstruation. Solutions? Pick a sport - running, tennis, aerobic dancing, or any other kind of intensive exercise! This boosts serotonin levels, also known as the ‘happy’ hormone, which helps to reduce or even prevent PMS. Plus, exercise is a good stress buster too!

Stay Healthy For An Enjoyable Trip

Nothing spoils the excitement of discovering a foreign place like falling sick. The most common conditions that take place during trips are diarrhea, nausea, abdominal cramps and bloating. It pays to take extra precautions, particularly if you are travelling to developing countries: always stick to bottled water, and avoid eating raw or undercooked food. Also, wash your hands with soap, and use a hand sanitizer when washing facilities are unavailable.

Probiotics For Better Immunity

Probiotics are an alternative medicine that is recognized by the the National Institute of Health in the United States. They are commonly used to prevent and treat certain illnesses and support general wellness. Antibiotics kill gut-friendly bacteria as well as the unfriendly bacteria and probiotics are widely used after antibiotics to offset its side effects. A study published in the Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal in April 2010 shows that probiotics reduce the severity of diarrhea and enhance immunity. It also increases the bioavailabity of Vtamin B, calcium, iron, zinc, copper, and among others.

Effective Natural Relief For Constipation

Constipation can happen because the colon absorbs too much water or is sluggish. Insufficient fiber intake is the likely cause in most cases. Soluble fiber from oats, rice bran, and fruit will help to soften stools for easy elimination. Whole grains, cereals, seeds, and the skin of most fruits and vegetables provide insoluble fibers that help the stool pass quickly through the intestines. To meet your daily fiber needs, aim for at least 2 servings of fruit and 3 cups of vegetables/ legumes. Also, drink at least 8 glasses of water to aid regular bowel movement.

Healthy lifestyle, Healthy liver

Liver damage usually has mild or no symptoms, and it is highly associated with one’s lifestyle. Excessive consumption of alcohol, nightlife, diets rich in fatty and sugary foods, and long-prolonged use of medications can place undue stress on his/her liver. In addition, researchers found that overweight and sleep problems may increase risk of liver disease and other health complications.

Liver-Friendly Diet

Firstly, watch your alcohol intake. Processing alcohol stresses your liver significantly. Keeping your liver from toxic chemicals relaxes it and maintains its optimal function. And also, keep yourself away from greasy fatty foods. Saturated fats are harder to process, such as sausages, bacon, hot dogs, and high fat dairy products. Limit the intake of processed food like white rice, biscuits, cakes, pastries, donuts and candy. Fresh fruits and vegetables are good source of enzymes, fibers, vitamins, phyto-nutrients, that help optimize liver functions.

Skin friendly fruits

Eating more Vitamin C-rich fruits, such as strawberry, guava, orange, and papaya may help to ward off wrinkles and age-related dryness. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that slows the rate of free-radical damage -- free radicals are unstable molecules that damage collagen and cause skin dryness, fine lines and wrinkles. Researches suggest that vitamin C may also reduce sunburn caused by exposure to ultraviolet radiation and prevent the consequences of long-term sun exposure, which can lead to skin cancer.  

Water for Beauty.

70% of our body is made up of water. Water is necessary for metabolic activities and regulating the moisture content in skin. With aging, the skin’s water binding ability is significantly reduced. For hydration from within, try Hyaluronic Acid, a skin nutrient that locks up to 6,000 times its weight to retain moisture, smoothen wrinkles, and stimulate repair of damaged skin.

A healthy weight for a healthy liver

Do you know? Obesity, particularly, abdominal or central obesity, is a major risk factor for developing fatty liver disease. Excessive fat accumulating in the liver may eventually lead to inflammation and scarring in the liver. Hence, it is important to maintain a healthy weight by practicing balanced diet and exercise regularly. Also, do aim for the ideal body mass index (BMI) that is between 18.5 and 22.9. [BMI= weight (kg) / height (m2)]

Trying to lose weight? Drink more water!

Drink more water and reduce your daily calorie intake by replacing soft drink, alcohol or coffee with water. Thirst can also be confused with hunger, so by drinking water, you may avoid consuming extra calories.

Joint food.

Foods high in antioxidants such as fruits and vegetables can help to fight off free radicals which may damage our joints. Omega-3 fatty acids have natural anti-inflammation properties to reduce swelling and stiffness. For extra cartilage help, take supplements with glucosamine and chondroitin to build up cartilage, improve joint lubrication and to inhibit enzymes from further cartilage breakdown. Joint Sensei is a quad-action formula with glucosamine, chondroitin, cat’s claw and Ajuga extracts specially formulated for joint health and improved flexibility.

Stretch and flex.

Regular stretching helps keep muscles and joints strong and reduce the incidence of injury. To increase your joint’s current range of motion, the surrounding muscles have to be stretched progressively beyond their accustomed length. For example, stretching your waist muscles can help prevent back injury. Stand with a half squat with feet shoulder-width apart, knees bent and hands on hips. Bend slowly to the left then back to the center. Then bend to the right. You should feel the tension at your waist muscles. Keep it parallel without leaning forwards or backwards. It takes merely 5 minutes for 10 repetitions!
